The digital era continues to put pressure on enterprises to improve software development capabilities and speed up internal processes—and VCs are targeting technologies that meet that demand.

Our latest installment of Emerging Tech Research includes market maps of venture-backed companies, technology overviews, and analysis of opportunities and risks in the DevOps industry. Key takeaways include:
  • DevOps providers raised $7.4 billion in VC funding in 2020, up from $6 billion in 2019.
  • Increased recognition of DevOps as a strategy to drive digital transformation is fueling investment in related tools and technology; simultaneously, society is placing more value on the ability to shop, communicate, work and learn remotely.
  • The DevOps space was active in 2020 in terms of both IPO exits and M&A and we expect this trend to continue in 2021, particularly as several startups achieve late-stage unicorn valuations.
